What is WebVR?

WebVR is an industry-standard API for you to stream virtual reality content through your phone's web browser. With WebVR you can open a Matterport Space on your web browser, tap the VR button, insert into your headset, and enjoy.


No need to download a separate app to enjoy a Matterport VR Space.
